Rock 'em, Sock 'em kidlets

Ok, so once again I am not doing too well with this whole posting thing and none of you has called me on it. Where's the accountability, where's the love?!

No matter. I will forge on and try to remember that I have a blog.

So, what's new?

Well, Eva (she's 19 mts old) has started to torment her older sister (Lila, who is 4). Eva is, apparently, an extremely emphatic human bean ( I don't know where she gets that) and she wants what she wants, be it toys or food or whatever. So if Lila stands in her way, she proceeds to pinch her or pull her hair. Now, you might say, "that's not unusual between siblings." But let me give you an image of Lila in these situations: "MOOOOOOMMM! Eva pinched me" Insert various whining and moaning where appropriate. It seems to my mind, being an only child, that an older sibling would in some way retaliate or defend herself against a BABY who barely weighs 20 pounds. But, apparently, I have children whose demeanors are different enough that this problem could go on and on. And, in general, the parenting books frown on boxing rings.

go figure.
